Storytime: Learning how to rest

Hello and welcome to my blog! Happy Hump day! I’m really tired and in pain. How are you doing? I’ve been feeling tired even after drinking coffee twice a day for a few days but I still pushed myself to be productive. My left foot has been hurting me for 3 weeks and I’ve beenContinue reading “Storytime: Learning how to rest”

Storytime: When will this pandemic end?

Hello and welcome to my blog! So I tried this themed thing and I think it has pulled the plug on my creativity and originality and spontaneity. My impulsive nature is a bad thing when it comes to problem solving and conflict resolution, but it comes in handy when I’m writing. I wanted to getContinue reading “Storytime: When will this pandemic end?”

Storytime: I was very mindful today

Hello 👋 reader and welcome to my blog! How you doing today? I’m so excited to share my thoughts and I’m afraid that I might forget them because I got them while cleaning the bathrooms (I listen to podcasts while I clean the bathrooms because I don’t like cleaning the bathrooms but I like theContinue reading “Storytime: I was very mindful today”

Storytime: How can I motivate my son to learn?

I sit here at 10:30pm, tea cup in my hand (too late for coffee) while I contemplate my parenting techniques. I have the habit of trying to convince my son to do what I want by bribing him with things he wants, then when that doesn’t work, I start threatening to remove a privilege orContinue reading “Storytime: How can I motivate my son to learn?”

Storytime: I’m fine

Nobody: Absolutely nobody: Me: In case you’re wondering how my day is going, I just broke down into tears an hour ago during my son’s French class because the teacher asked him a question in French, he froze, and I kept telling him to answer, and the teacher could hear me, and he kept lookingContinue reading “Storytime: I’m fine”

Storytime: switching roles does wonders

I switched roles with my son today…twice! So here’s what happened: My son was eating dinner and he started fooling around, trying to get my attention. I’ve begun to notice these things as they are. A need to be met. So I decided to play with him a bit. I told him “I’ll be theContinue reading “Storytime: switching roles does wonders”

Storytime: Look how far you’ve come

I hold my son in my arms, and I feel the love flooding through me. This peace washes over me and I feel so much gratitude. If you were with me through my difficult pregnancy, sudden delivery and 3 weeks of agony during which my 1.5 kg son was in the NICU, you’d understand (heContinue reading “Storytime: Look how far you’ve come”

Storytime: It’s human nature

It’s human nature to get hung up on the things you don’t have or can’t do I complain about the people in my life a lot, but honestly, I can’t live without them. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t make things up. It’s just, the good things in my life, the happy moments, I eitherContinue reading “Storytime: It’s human nature”

Storytime: In this moment

Hello 👋 reader and welcome to my blog! I just wanted to share a good moment with you because I usually share the bad (I’m more creative that way). It’s been a long day and I did my fair share of yelling and my son drove me crazy during online class, but in this momentContinue reading “Storytime: In this moment”

Storytime: Day 3 of total lockdown

It’s day 3 of the total lockdown and I’m telling you it’s hard. Not because I’m not getting much of my goals done. Not because I can’t leave the house. Not because I’m moody and keep trying to tell myself “I am calm and in control of my emotions”. But because I have to walkContinue reading “Storytime: Day 3 of total lockdown”
